Excerpt from The Centennial of Susquehanna County

The splendid mountains, the silent flowing river, the site of the first log hut, the broad reach of valley, the dust of our fathers were still here to animate us; but the sturdy pioneers were gone and scarcely a vestige remained of their early habitations. Yet the voices of our hallowed dead spoke to us in no uncertain measures, and the lofty influence of their noble lives, we felt, lived with us still, and would live on and on forever. The fruits of their early labors, the re sults of civil and religious liberty, to enjoy which they braved disease, famine, and the solitude of wilderness, now spread a mantle of light over their sacred resting - places and embalm their memory with a savor more grateful to their descendants than though they were en shrined in the death temples of the royal dead.

During that trio of memorable days we stood upon a point of time with our faces turned toward the past, and, grasping the meaning of the hundred years of our existence as a community, we found ourselves cheerfully weaving new garlands to the never-fading chap 'lets of those who faced everything most terrible to civilized man in order to lay the broad and deep foundations of free communities; but in the wondrous changes of the century that is gone we see, after all, only the budding of a few seminal principles - in truth not even the beginning of the end.
